Collette’s Daube

Beef Daube (serve with mashed potatoes or polenta)

1.5 kilo of stew beef ( about 3 lbs)

olive oil

1 chopped onion

1 whole head of garlic, smashed

1 tsp thyme

1 glass of red wine

1 bay leaf

5 cloves

10 juniper berries

1/4 -1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Saute the onion, garlic and beef together in 2 tbs olive oil. Make sure not to burn the garlic!

Add the remaining ingredients and cook on low with a lid (a slow cooker would work well for this part) until the meat is tender and easily pulls apart. Allow the daube to simmer without the lid to reduce the liquid and thicken a bit. Serve with mashed potatoes or polenta.

    so many questions… who is Colette? What is a daube? and where would I get juniper berries? Might have to leave them out; this looks like a good recipe!

    daube is like beef burgundy, but the provencal version. Colette is our 70 yr old neighbor. I will send you juniper berries :).

      no, no veggis in it… but if i were you i would serve it with a side of green beans or salad and a potato and carrot puree.
